It’s not a shoe deal, but Kevin Durant has signed his first endorsement deal with Upper Deck. KD will appear on their packaging and packaging and will have a line of autographed items.

The sports card and memorabilia company will market Durant in all of its 2007-08 products, and on its packaging, and will unveil a line of autographed Upper Deck Authenticated items.

Durant’s first card will appear in Fleer Ultra SE and Upper Deck’s First Edition Basketball and his first autograph will appear in Upper Deck SP Game Used Basketball.

Just the first of many of these deals for Durant. The kid is a rare talent and will instantly be one of the most marketable players in the entire NBA. It won’t be long before his face is plastered all over every product you can think of. Do they still make metal lunch boxes? Or even better, I want a Kevin Durant Thermos. That would be sweet.

Congrats Kevin.
